Legislative Consent - Fifth Senedd (2016-2021)

When the UK Parliament wishes to legislate on a subject matter which has already been devolved to the Senedd, convention requires it to receive the consent of the Senedd before it may pass the legislation in question. Such consent is given by the Senedd through Legislative Consent Motions (LCMs).

Standing Order 29 sets out guidelines on how the Senedd deals with LCMs (PDF, 1.92MB).

The following UK Bills have had the matter of Legislative Consent considered by the Senedd during the Fifth Senedd. Full details of that consideration including the timetable for Scrutiny from Business Committee and the outcome of any scrutiny by Plenary or Committees can be found on the page that follows for each individual UK Bill.​
